Great venue for Broadway shows, ballet, and opera. Comfortable seats, especially the roomier Orchestra and Boxes/Suites. Great acoustics and friendly staff. Worth a visit arrive early to explore and get some history from the volunteer ushers.

I love the Orpheum Theatre. All things considered it is the best place in Memphis to see a show really of any kind. Obviously seeing great Broadway style shows is what the Orpheum is mostly known for but it is so much more. It is...More
